This quilt started as a charm pack. I then added borders of either print or cream cotton to the charms. Then I added a border of floral print to match the charm squares an bound it in the same fabric. The back is plain cream cotton and the wadding is polyester. It's turned out well - if I say so myself! BTW the charms were 5ins square.
This is a tutorial for a purse (wallet) that has 2 zippered compartments, a pocket for bank notes and 2 pockets for credit cards. It does up with a flap that has a Kam push stud snap. It's pretty easy to make - don't be put off by the zippers they are easy to put in in this pattern.
These bags are really easy to make and the frame goes on like a breeze In fact they are so easy you could buy one frame and make a few bag bodies and swap them around. Becasue of the kisslock closure they are quite secure and most of the frames come with 2 extra little loops that you can either clip a chain handle to or use cord. I thought they only came in 6 inch but I've seen some that are quite a bit bigger.
I designed this wallet purse with zipped compartments, card slots and other sections. It was a bit of a pain to make but a useful size and room for everything. I was going to write a tutorial but it was too complicated!
I've made this oilcloth bag which can be carried in the hand, at the elbow or as a shoulder bag due to the clever handle. it is lined in red and white check cotton with interior slip pockets and a zippered pocket.
This bag is made from red linen Laura Ashley furnishing fabric. A lovely heavy lien with a pretty design. The handle is "gucci-style" it is wide and high enough to go over your shoulder. In the photo the fabric really doesn't look as bright as it is. It is a real true red. I used pelmet weight interfacing which is quite stiff so the bag holds its own shape.
I made this bag from Amy Butler fabric in the Love series. It is interlined with stiff interlining (pelmet-grade - just a bit thinner than timtex) I reinforced the base with plastic grid and added gold coloured feet. The bag has loads of pockets. 4 slip pockets (2 on each side) one zippered internal pocket and a pocket for my mobile at the end of the bag. its got a zipper closure across the top of the bag and two handles in matching fabric. I also added a gold coloured chain for a shoulder strap. There's more on my blog http://tiny.cc/6z5vc
I made this new wipe clean bag fom oilcloth. I quilted the front and back. I think it looks a bit too much like a wash bag but I am still going to use it! Its a handy size and I added plenty of internal pockets. The lining is made from cotton 70's single bed sheet. Pretty eh?
